    So Republicans win both houses and the presidency.

    Bush and six years of Republican majority gave us unpaid for war, tax breaks that benefited mostly the wealthy, more people entering the ranks of the poor, unpaid for social programs like "No child left behind" and "the drugs for votes bill". They let Bin Laden go. They failed on the War on Terror. They worked with the Chamber of Commerce to send jobs to China. They widened the gap between rich and poor. The deregulated financial meltdown. The Katrina fiasco. Six terrible years of failure which left us with trillions upon trillions in debt. The number one cause of bankruptcy for Bush's entire term was medical bills, will people be insured?

    OK, so forget all that. Republicans now win both houses and the presidency.

    What do you expect different? You won't admit to voter suppression. But you know the Republican leadership wouldn't even bother if they had a message they thought Americans would want to hear.

    So you've smeared Obama and convinced Americans to vote Republican.

    Now what? What comes next?

    What will be the economic policy?

    What social policies will Republicans want to "enforce"?

    What is the plan to rebuild America?

    What will they do for the Middle Class?

    What about education?

    What will their foreign policy be?

    How will they heal the "divide"?

    How will people afford health care?

    What happens to Social Security?

    What happens to Medicare?

    What happens with the EPA?

    They certainly have no plans ready other than to burn everything Obama ever touched.

    They probably expect it to be not Bush/Obama for another 4 years, lets hope they are right.

    I expect them to actually make an attempt to fix this nations problems. Namely shrinking government big time.

    Less spending would be enough for me at this point. Obama is a train Wreck, So Was Bush, we can only Pray who Ever the Republicans Nominate is less Destructive.

    That would be huge in it self. A Giant step forward, after that you need to watch them too.

    When the Policies he has put in place are so counter to our Ideology, then simply "Burning everything he touched" is a huge Plus IMO.

    Obamacare
    Dodd/Frank

    Roll back both of those, and start issuing Drilling permits, and Green light the Pipe line.

    Do those things and you will see an Immediate Positive result in the Private Sector where it is needed.

    And For Christ Sake pass a Real Budget and stop making tax policy in 2 month increments because it's better politically for you to do it that way. Our Economy needs Predictability with Tax Policy. You watch if the Republicans do take Congress and the WH, the Economic Rally will begin the Day after the Election in Anticipation of a more Business Friendly Climate in DC. Heck sooner if it becomes clear before the Election that Obama is going to lose and the Republicans are likely to take Congress.

    When it happens Obama Apologists and liberals everywhere will go on Left wing Loon shows and blogs and tell us all that the Businesses all deliberately didn't hire to get Obama out of office, When the Truth is their not hiring because their Terrified were facing 4 more years of this incompetent President, Who's Intelligence is better than his Common sense, and Leadership abilities.

    Unfortunately, we live in the real world where we actually have to deal with the consequences of Obama's massive screw up.
